Hike up Berlin Pass Trail and Old Williams College Ski Area - August 6, 2006

These pictures were taken with my Fujifilm Finepix S9000 digital camera on a short hike up Berlin Pass Trail and to the Old Williams College Ski Area on August 6, 2006. The hike includes Williamstown, Massachusetts, and Berlin or Petersburg, New York. Images are shown at a resolution of 640x480, but many are available either full-size or cropped from the 3488x2616 originals by clicking on the links after the captions.


Our trail goes up there. It's an old road over the mountain. [3488x2616]

[3488x2616]

A short way up the trail, we cross into New York, marked by this.

The trail. [3488x2616]

The trail is also a stream in some parts. [3488x2616]

At the top, we meet the Taconic Crest Trail. Lots of large ponds.

The top of the Berlin Pass Trail we just came up. [3488x2616]

Mount Greylock is behind that tree. [3488x2616]

There was also a seemingly abandoned truck on the Taconic Crest. [3488x2616]

Just south on the Taconic Crest. [3488x2616]

Looking south, possibly toward Mount Raimer. [3488x2616]

Heading back down. [3488x2616]

Back to the state line marker. This time, a closer look. First, from the New York side. [3488x2616]

It was apparently put here in 1898. [3488x2616]

From the Massachusetts side. [3488x2616]

[3488x2616]

Almost back down. [3488x2616]

Back to the parking area. [3488x2616]

A small pond.

With frogs.



Now, a walk over to the old Williams College ski area. This is only the open slope near the base. It starts way up at the summit of Berlin Mountain. [3488x2616]



[3488x2616]



Another pond, this one with a lot of frogs. [3488x2616]

[3488x2616]

Looks like fun. [3488x2616]
